Written answers (Question to Finance)

The Deputy may be aware that this issue was discussed at length during the passage of the recently enacted Finance (No. 2) Act 2013, during which I indicated that I was not prepared to provide for the change at the current time on the grounds of additional cost to the Exchequer. Therefore, the amendment was considered already and I do not propose to revisit the matter in the short term.
